Is the supplied Bend Table "ready to use"?

Having noticed that an Excel Bend Table has been provided for use with Sheet
Metal parts, I was wondering if the supplied table is "ready to use" as is,
or must I make modifications to the table?

If modifications are needed, typically, what changes are usually made to the
bend table, and for what purposes?

Thank you in advance for your answers!

the bend table is ment to be modified to match your companies bend
allowances and bend radius. For example, we use a lot of 18ga CRS (.047)
they don't show a .047 sheet thickness so I added a new table for the for
.047 thickness and under the .031 bending radii I set the value to .078 for
the 90 degree bend. Also for the .060 sheet thickness, .031 bending radii we
found that for a 90 degree bend we found a bend allowance of .094 worked
better than the .109457 value found in the table so I modified that table to
match our companies tried and true bend allowances.
